Challenge for Pictures in a Series: Motif or Concept Bring us your Citrus still life!

Of course you love the scent of lemon peel and perhaps a squeeze of fresh lime in your IPA beer.

I find citrus also interesting in that they have form, color and distinctive texture!

Please add your own examples and feel welcome to comment!


Okay, the other day I couldn't comment here, as there was a hanging post that wouldn't delete, but now it has disappeared. These lemons seem really fresh and I love how you have them with leaves attached. You probably picked
them right from the tree. Here, this never happens. I would love it!

I hope others will go through their albums and share diverse pictures with any citrus that is lit interestingly or has a key role in the image!

This is from my neighbors tree in his front garden adjacent to my home.

Amazingly he was my student in Medical School in Boston, some 50 years ago! Imagine my surprise when I discovered he and his two sons are ophthalmologists and live next door to me!

There’s something special about a solitary lemon growing on its own with no neighbors? Does it benefit by getting more nutrition?


I like the light is sufficiently asymmetrical to allow the surface texture and solid form to be appreciated!

I imagine it must be so marvelous to actually have a lemon hanging from a tree, and just pluck it. You are fortunate. Looks great, tastes so fresh too!
